Video: Mortal Kombat Hits PS Vita May 1st, New Kitana Trailer Out

100°
127w ago - Mortal Kombat Producer Hector Sanchez has shared some fresh Kitana video trailer footage today of Mortal Kombat, which will be hitting the PlayStation Vita handheld on May 1, 2012.

To quote: Developing Mortal Kombat for PS Vita was an incredibly rewarding experience for the team here at NetherRealm Studios.

The ability to utilize the numerous new features available on PS Vita was a very gratifying mission, and we are delivering the best possible on-the-go fighting experience for fans.

Our design team jumped at the opportunity to devise 150 new Challenge Tower missions that incorporate the DLC characters (like Freddy Krueger!), while also integrating the front touchscreen and accelerometer in ways that made sense and enhanced the complete Mortal Kombat experience.

The artists enjoyed creating some excellent new costumes (still to be revealed!), as well as re-creating an iconic MKII arena that integrates the rear camera that will give players the ability to literally Fight Anywhere.





Our programmers worked diligently to make sure the players' experience of Mortal Kombat on PS Vita was pristine and up to NetherRealm standards: fine tuning controls (while adding new controls, such as touchcreen...
 

The Legend of Dragoon: PS1 RPG Classic Reborn May 1st on PSN

300°
127w ago - SCE Worldwide Studios President Shu Yoshida has announced today that the PS1 RPG classic The Legend of Dragoon is coming to PSN on May 1, 2012.

To quote: The Legend of Dragoon was one of the last projects I worked on as a producer in Japan Studio and by far the biggest team I managed hands-on.

We started the project in 1996 with only a handful of people, hired one by one as we were building up teams for Ape Escape, The Legend of Dragoon, and Ico simultaneously. During the peak of the game's development, we had well over 100 people working internally in the studio on The Legend of Dragoon - for a PSone game!

We had roughly 10 artists dedicated just to drawing concept art for this gigantic RPG. As the game contained lots of pre-rendered maps and full-motion videos, we were forced to spread the content over four CDs, which was the maximum number of discs that the fattest PSone game case could hold.

It took nearly three years to build the team and develop the game, which was released in December 1999 in Japan and June 2000 in the US. As I moved from Japan to the US in March 2000, I was able to personally handle the game's release in both Japan and the US.

Following the game's launch in Japan, we learned from players that certain parts of the game were too difficult....
 

Sony Announces Sorcery Will Storm PlayStation Move This May

50°
132w ago - Sony Product Marketing Manager Jefferson Dong has announced today that Sorcery will storm PlayStation Move this May, with details below as follows:

We are pleased to announce that one of the most highly anticipated titles for the PlayStation 3 home console and the PlayStation Move motion control peripheral, the fantasy spell-casting game Sorcery, will be available in stores in North America on Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012.

The game is an action packed magical adventure where the PlayStation Move is your magic wand and only you, a sorcerer's young apprentice, can harness the true power of magic to save this mystical realm from the darkness of the Nightmare Queen.

Ready to get started? here's a quick summary of the story from Brian Upton, Creative Director on Sorcery.

Finn is in trouble. First, he accidentally blew up his master's alchemy lab. Then he's let Erline, his master's magical cat, talk him into trespassing in the realm of the dead. Now he's unleashed an ancient universe-destroying evil that won't stop until everything he cares about is utterly annihilated. It has not been a good day.

Even though he's only an apprentice, Finn must find a way to defeat the Nightmare Queen before she destroys the human world. To do this he must plunge deep into the...
 

Resistance: Burning Skies - The Chimera Infect PS Vita This May

50°
135w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Product Marketing Specialist Derek Osgood has announced today that Resistance: Burning Skies - The Chimera is set to infect PS Vita this coming May.

To quote: In case you missed our PS Vita video livechat today, PlayStation's John Koller revealed an official release date for Resistance: Burning Skies.

The Chimera will invade PS Vita on May 29, 2012, bringing you the world's first portable dual-analog FPS.

Resistance has always boasted iconic visual design, and today we can reveal the Burning Skies box art – a freshly slain Hybrid lying on the streets of New York City with the protagonist's fire axe resting in the rubble.

We like to think it recalls some of the eerie essence of the classic Resistance: Fall of Man box art, but we'd love to hear what you think!

Resistance: Burning Skies pulls you into an entirely new dimension of the Resistance universe. Set in a tale of survival during the August 1951 Chimeran invasion of the East Coast, you take control of Tom Riley, an everyday firefighter from New Jersey who is thrown headfirst into the teeth of the Chimeran war machine, forcing him to redefine his notions of duty and heroism.

As most of you know, this is going to be the first ever dual-analog FPS game on...
